I've hit up three different wal-marts in the past week, and have picked up quite a bit.

I bit on the recycling truck for $15. Two of the three WM's had dozens of this set.
I picked up a Luke's Speeder for $12. They had about ten of them. Kicking myself for not picking up a couple of more, just for the extra minifigs.
I bought 4 mando battle packs and 3 clone trooper packs for $6 each.
I picked up a bunch of the star wars poly bags, priced at $1.50 each.
I got the sith nightspeeder for $12.
I've also picked up another fire atv, and a few of the 3 in 1 creator vehicles (the 60 piece ones) for $2.50 each.
I got one of the ambulance city sets for $9.50

None of our LOTR have been on sale, i've price checked them all. I've picked up a few more, but they are escaping my mind at the moment.

Are these deals company wide or YMMV?

Also I got a lot of gift cards for LEGO this year and as such I have a couple extra Ewar polybags from Chima.

Ultimately, they are YMMV and that's why you scan every damn set they have left.

Walmart finds for me this last week:

Mining dump truck for $17
Car and caravan (camper) $9.50
Recycling truck $14.50
Quin jet $49.50
Dino headquarters $50
Dino triceratops $25
Ewoks $12
Ghost train $54

Less common finds and ymmv from walmart to walmart:

Lotr sets mostly at 30% off
Forest police station $54
Vampire castle $70
SW planets series 2
Ninjago green snake head mech thing $12
Fire plane $40


Target:

All Dino sets
All Cars sets
About half the Monsters sets...different ones for different stores
A lot of hero factory bag sets
Ninjago,same as the monsters
SW Gungan sub
SW anakin's jedi fighter
SW ewoks
Lotr sets...my store clearanced all of them, while some stores clearanced none
Super heroes bionicle looking sets


My best find was the Dino Headquarters for $50 at walmart...until I found one at Target with an "as-is" sticker on it for $25.

Just built the Imperial V-Wing I found at Walmart. Nice little set actually, I'm surprised by how much I enjoy it.

According to Target's website, the one Target I was at had limited stock of the X-Wing, but I didn't see it when I was over there. Another farther away Target has the Gungan Sub, but not sure I want it enough to venture over. A Desert Skiff rang up $17 at my local Target, but once again not sure I wanted it enough. I'll head over to the Target that is supposed to have the X-Wing in stock in the morning, since after all my spending that's the only set I'm really interested in at this point.

Interesting note on the Garbage Truck set... Found it in two different size boxes at one of the Targets.

I got pretty much the exact same stuff you did, plus a few others. My favorite find was probably the Darth Maul Sith Infiltrator for $27. I passed on it when I found it on clearance at Wal-Mart for like $50 back around August, and I'm glad I did, as $27 was a much better price. I also lucked out a few months ago, when one of my Wal-Marts clearanced out the LOTR Attack on Weathertop and Batmobile Two Face Chase for $25 each.

It's been a long time since I've hit Lego this hard on clearance. Feels good.

I am jealous of the Darth Maul Infiltrator for that price. I would loved to have picked it up!
I saw the X-Wing for $40 but passed on it. It just wasn't that good of a deal for me, although the price to pieces ratio was awesome. I'd like to score a big 500+ piece set for a great price, and that would have been the one, but it had relatively no place in my collection.

Went to a couple Target's and Walmart's today. Both Target had a lot of 2012 sets, but no clearance :( Only set on clearance was spongebob. Walmart had 0 2012 sets - all 2013 stuff.

I ended up getting Dino T-rex hunter for $35 at a Meijer. That's my only find. My little cousin like's dinosaurs, so maybe he'll like this :)

I am still slightly new to clearance hunting but I came away with an okay but small haul.

I got the little yellow tractor 3-in-1 for $4.87 at Target with two of the Hobbit Elf polybags for $3 a piece. Walmart was completely out of everything LEGO and I went to KMart and found a busted up Uruk-Hai army box that was unopened. They sold it to me for $25.

Apparently my TRU had a Queen Anne's Revenge and sold it 30 minutes before I got there.

Went to the Target over on the other side of town. They had one X-Wing left, but wouldn't sell it to me for $50. It was also flagged that they couldn't put it out until February, even though they only had one left.

I think I'm just going to get the X-Wing for $60. Kmart is the only place near here stocked with it, and they only have about 5 left. I'm afraid that if I wait for it to go on clearance I'll miss my chance at it. It only has a $4 upcharge over my usual price/pieces ratio, so I'll deal with it. Plus the only Lego X-Wing I have is the one that came with the Yavin 4 planet (that purchase got me interested in Lego again actually).

It's an X-Wing. Lego will make at least two "new" ones (They will look exactly the same.) by the time the current license ends. I wouldn't worry about missing out on it. TRU has an X-Wing in stock for 6-7 years once.

Also it seems Lego is still making the current X-Wing...

http://shop.lego.com...tarfighter-9493

There has been five X-Wings in less than 15 years, and the only reason there wasn't more was because the 2006 one stuck around for awhile. That's one every three years. So don't pay full price. This is Cheap Ass Lego after all.

Only thing you should pay full price for is girl on girl jet ski sets.

The Quinjet was never super exciting to me because you could get most of the figs for cheaper in other sets. The only exclusive minifig in the Quinjet is Black Widow (and Ironman with a CIRCLE print if you are really hadcore.)

If you are interested in it, I'd buy it anywhere you see it at less than MSRP because it is getting rare. Resellers on eBay and Amazon are already gouging for that set. Amazon Warehouse has it in the low $60s. Hmm. I might have just talked myself into buying one ofr resale down the road.

Awesome website. I just found this article on it:

I had heard people talking about how expensive the older modular buildings were, but I had no idea the prices these were going for on the secondary market these days.

I still have Cafe Corner and Green Grocer mint in box...

That's how I found the website, when I was trying to price that set. I never ended up selling it for $350 but for $450 instead, I think people really started taking interest in this manor after they saw how much Taj Mahals, Eiffel Towers and Statue of Liberties brought in.

As far as from an investment standpoint, I have no idea if sets will sell for ludicrous amounts like that a few years after release, I think people are flooding the market as it is which was one of the main reasons why I let go of my Green Grocer. It's ok though, it helped me out paying for my daughters Birthday Party and it will take the wife off my back for a bit.

I'm sorry but that website has taken "investing" in Lego into a completely insane level.

Invest in exclusive sets, everything else (Really Dublo Zoo?) or sets with exclusive minifigures. I don't think the Super Hero sets will be as big as people think because Lego will just release more and more as the movies and sequels come out.

Missed the Diagon Alley set. Amazon jacked its price up to $210, and the Lego shop is sold out.

I know that Lego will probably release another same X-Wing in the future, however I am interested in Porkins and the red Astromech Droid.

So far, I've only ever resold minifigs (prequel SW minifigs--I don't need 'em) I DID sell an old Batman Arkham Asylum a few years back (I had two--brace yourself, I got them at TRU clearanced at $14. People don't remember, but the first round of Batman didn't sell well. They were always on clearance.) Sold my opened box copy for $200 in 2010...probably should have waited. Then again, there's a new Arkham out now...

Minifigs are easy to ship. The sets (especially in boxes) are a shipping nightmare. This site is very interesting. But, yeah. If sites like it are popping up, it's not hard to imagine an eventual Beanie Baby-esque implosion.

Yeah the first wave of Batman Lego really miss judged. They didn't sell at all, and then all of a sudden they started selling like girl on girl jet skis when the second wave came around.

I got my Batman AA for $30 and it was missing a random bag of small parts and a minifigure head. It was 68 pieces and LEGO sent me every single one of them for free, no questions asked!

Lego is awesome like that.

I remember calling around trying to find a $14 Arkham, never did get one. That was just about when i got back into legos. The newer one is a must buy for me this year.
And i agree that legos seem due for a bit of a price decrease, but unlike beanie babies kids play with legos, which means there should always be some demand for hard to find, out of print sets.
